New Delhi: Delhi Metro will make 10 of its stations, across various sections of its network, go completely cashless from January 1, 2017, by opting digital payment app Paytm for token purchase and smart card recharge, it was announced on Friday.
The commuters at these stations will be required to scan the QR code at the station with Paytm app on their mobile phones.
This will send a message to the token vendor or the customer care operator, who will then issue the token or recharge the card with the desired amount, said the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) in a statement.
The 10 metro stations which have been chosen, are done so because of certain prominent factors, namely, the major footfall of smart-card holders there (at least 70 per cent) and adequate mobile connectivity. More info
